Laura Bonnett PhD, MMathStats, AFHEA

Post-Doctoral Research Associate, Department of Biostatistics and Department of Clinical Infection, Microbiology and Immunology, University of Liverpool, Liverpool, United Kingdom

Dr Laura Bonnett is a post-doctoral research associate within the Institute of Translational Medicine and the Institute of Global Health at the University of Liverpool.   Her current research is as part of the PreDiCT-TB Consortium (www.predict-tb.eu) which considers model-based preclinical development of anti-tuberculosis drug combinations. From 2008 to 2013, Laura was the study statistician on a National Institute for Health Research programme grant considering predicting outcomes for epilepsy treatments. During this time Laura also completed a part-time PhD entitled "Prognostic Factors for Epilepsy".

Laura has published several high-impact journal articles considering prognostic factors for outcomes including 12 month remission and treatment failure for patients with epilepsy.  In particular, her work estimating time off driving for people with a first ever unprovoked seizure has led to changes in the driving regulations both within the UK and Europe.  Her work considering time off driving following anti-epileptic drug withdrawal is currently being considered to potentially change guidelines once again.
